Quick Reference


A small group of writers (and others) bound together more by friendship and habitual association than by a common literary cause or style that might unite a school or movement. The term often has pejorative connotations of exclusive cliquishness. The Bloomsbury group is one well-known example. See also cénacle, salon.
